[Qt-creator] Adjusting Color of error messages

   Thanks for the help. Looks like setting those colors has an interaction with some sort of alpha blending? I'm unable to get "bright" colors. I tried just setting pure RED or pure GREEN but all are "muted" when actually viewing them on screen. I'll try to send some screen shots for what I mean. Does that make sense?

When there are errors in my code to the right of the editor the error message will show up but the issue is that the red color is very dark and hard to read. Is there somewhere to adjust this color? I'm building QtCreator myself so even if I have to dig into the code and recompile I am ok with that. Example image is attached.

    If I'm not mistaken, that should be "CodeModel_Error_TextMarkColor" and
    "CodeModel_Warning_TextMarkColor" in share/qtcreator/themes/*.
